We completed two light experiments last week to show the splitting and mixing of light/colour.
Experiment 1: We made rainbow spinners to show that when the rainbow colours are spun quickly, your eyes can’t keep up and the spinner appears white.
Experiment 2: We explored white light and colour by placing skittles and the outer circle of a plate. We added water and observed what happened. The colours moved towards the middle and created a whirl of colour.
We started working with IZAK9 maths blocks on Friday. Matilda and Luke from 5th class gave us two tasks to complete. We had great fun working in our teams to solve the maths problems.
Yesterday we had our first Science exhibition of the year. We had great fun showing all of our visitors our project on ‘Electricity’. Our question was ‘How do we get the light at the top of a lighthouse to shine?’. We figured we needed to make a closed circuit. We loved explaining about the various circuits we made, such as series and parallel. We already can’t wait for the next Exhibition! Take a look at some of the pictures below.

Third class had a wonderful time today. Each child had the challenge and fun of dressing up as their favourite book character. Well done to everyone for the tremendous work and effort taken to produce such fantastic costumes.
We were very fortunate this week to attend a coding workshop in school. We learnt how to code and programme bee-bots. Take a look!
We have been busy creating some masterpieces in room 10. We have been concentrating on using line for effect; inspired by Georges Roualt and blending shades of colour in our paintings. We hope you enjoy looking at just some of our lovely work!
Today we had our first ‘Book Character Parade’. We all chose a character from our favourite book to dress up as. Everyone put in a huge effort. Well done and Happy Halloween from 3rd class!
